"The pro-life movement has noted for years that the abortion industry understands the link between teen sex and abortions. Thatâ??s why Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion business in the United States, has pushed so hard to get sex education classes in as many high schools as possible.
Now, new information from the Family Research Council confirms these concerns and the information will be presented in an upcoming lecture.
â??Recent analysis of demographic data on abortions indicates that abortion advocates use inflated abortion numbers to support their positions. Rather than the 1/3 of women commonly cited by abortion supporters as having obtained an abortion an analysis of the data indicates that the number is 1/6,â?? FRC says in a promotional for the lecture. â??Come listen the FRCâ??s Marriage and Religion Research Institute team as they discuss these compelling new numbers.â??
Some of the other important findings that will be discussed include:
â?¢ Almost 3/4 of abortions are to women who initiated sex at age 16 or younger
â?¢ 40% of women who begin sexual intercourse very early (12-13-14) will have abortions
â?¢ No great difference by income status in the percentage of women who procure abortions
The presenters at the FRC lecture include:
